It did not only rain but also poured for Kidd Mkandawire in Mzuzu on Sunday. With less than 10 patrons at his afternoon show at Sunbird Mzuzuâ€™s Boma Park, Kidd discontinued and abandoned the show without performing.
A Mzuzu-based Pamlonga Band, the only outfit which was performing at the show, was also told to stop performing by Kalimba Band leader Vitta Chirwa.
â€œDue to other reasons we are unable to continue with the show. We will organise another show with good publicity,â€ Chirwa told the patrons.
This happened after Kidd successfully re-united with his audience at the previous nightâ€™s show at the same venue in Kaningâ€™ina Room where he dished out almost all songs from his new album Mafumbo.
In an interview, Kidd expressed mixed feelings at his experience in Mzuzu: â€œIt was great to be back home and perform in front of my family and friends, but I wish we had many patrons. However, it was great to see people cry when I was performing Mwana Muweme last night.â€
The show coincided with a three-day Moon-Rock festival at Chintheche Inn, Nkhata Bay.
